Scope and content

[on headed notepaper for 40 Ennismore Gardens, SW]. Has just got the letter from 'Grandpapa' [Sir Charles Trevelyan or Robert Needham Philips], who told him not to bother answering; Robert will however write saying he has plenty of time to do so. The school 'got licked a little in a Cameron match'. Is looking forward to going to Wallington. The weather is very hot now. Is glad 'Harrow is winning' [in the Eton-Harrow cricket match?]. Asks his mother to thank 'Boar' [Mary Prestwich, known as 'Booa' to the Trevelyan family].
